Borough Councils are made up of councilors from the electoral districts
in the borough territory. Each Borough Council appoints a borough chair
from among its members. The boroughs also name the members of the urban
planning advisory committee.
Borough Councils are responsible for providing "local" services, notably
Borough Councils are subject to the same operating rules as a city council.
For example, they must hold a public meeting at least once a month at the
borough office's council chamber.
Borough Councils submit briefs and make recommendations to the City Council
on the budget, budget priorities, the preparation or amendment of urban
development plans, amendments to urban planning regulations, and any other
issues submitted to them by the City Council.
The Borough Councils do not have the power to borrow money or levy taxes.
